The long-awaited final installment of the #1 New York Times best-selling author’ s Nadia Stafford series. Since Kelley Armstrong wrapped up book two of the Nadia Stafford series, fans have been eager to know what happens to the tough-as-nails contract killer. At last, Wild Justice brings Nadia back for the series’ thrilling conclusion – an action-packed tale that will dazzle fans of the series as well as those who are only familiar with Armstrong’ s bestselling paranormal books.

In Wild Justice, Nadia is confronted with her most difficult task to date: going after the man who killed her cousin Amy twenty years prior. But when it turns out that someone else has already taken justice into their own hands, she is drawn into a complex situation where everything she knows and loves is thrown into the path of danger. Nadia is forced to take matters into her own hands, ultimately requiring her to confront her darkest secrets – and her deepest desires – in a way that she never thought possible.

My Thoughts

This is book three in a trilogy suspense series that Kelley Armstrong has been working on for a while, book one was published in 2007.  The main character, Nadia Stafford, is a former cop who went rogue and killed an unarmed suspect.  When she is forced to leave law enforcement, she buys a wilderness lodge in Ontario. It eventually falls on hard times, she takes a job as a hit man to help pay the bills.  Throughout the series we spend time with her hitman mentor, Jack, his mentor, Evelyn, and a US Marshall, who is also a part-time hit man Quinn.

At the beginning of this book, Quinn and Nadia have just ended an attempt at a relationship, or at least Nadia considers it ended.  Quinn isn’t quite as sure.  Jack contacts Nadia because he has found the person believed to have killed Nadia’s cousin, Amy, when she was a teenager.  Nadia had also been kidnapped at the same time.  She barely escaped with her life, but when she sent her cop father back to cabin, Amy was already dead and the suspect was gone.  They do eventually catch him, and there is a trial.  But he is acquitted.  When Jack finds this killer, someone has already killed him before they get there.  They do find his journal and Nadia has to come to some hard truths about her past.

It takes Nadia, Jack, Quinn and Evelyn a long time and many dead ends before they finally figure out who was the killer.  There are many twists and turns and you will keep guessing until the end.  I was surprised with many of the things that are uncovered in throughout the story.  I don’t want to give any parts away, so I won’t go into much more of the plot.  Just know that you don’t get from point A to point B in a straight line.

Although, this series isn’t really a romance or a paranormal, which is what I normally read, it is a great series and I recommend it.  I probably wouldn’t have tried it if it was a different author, but I’m a huge fan of Kelley Armstrong and thought I would give it a try. I’m really glad that I did.  I really like Nadia and Jack, especially.  Evelyn is pretty funny too.  There is a ton of action with a great story, which you’ve come to expect from Ms. Armstrong.

Narration of Wild Justice Audiobook

This is the first of the trilogy that I’ve done on audio.  At this time, book one is been published on audio, but I don’t think book two is out yet.  I’m sure it will be, but just isn’t done yet.  I enjoyed it on audio.  Jack has a gruff Irish brogue that I enjoyed. Nadia is Canadian and you could hear the accent on occasion.  The rest of the voices were pretty normal, but were distinct and done well.

  1. This sounds like something that can help me get out the box, I’ve been trying to find new genres, I really feel a little burned-out on romance, that’s is why i’ve been listening to a lot YA lately, even though they are mostly romance…LOL I can take a break from the overly sexed plots..LOL.
    I want something like the Fever series!!..LOL
    Thanks Melanie 🙂

  2. This is very light on the romance and is higher on the suspense. This is definitely closer to a UF, but without the paranormal/fantasy aspects. Plus, you know the writing is good, because it is Kelley Armstrong.

    I would recommend that you wait until book two is out on audio, so you can listen to the entire trilogy. I would imagine that it will be out soon.

  3. Ooo I don’t remember seeing this trilogy! I’m still working on her WOTO series and enjoying those. This one sounds even more like what I’d like though. Definitely checking it out 🙂 Thanks for the heads up!

    • Took me a while to find it. I’m glad I did. I really enjoyed.

  4. I think I would totally love this series. I like Suspense and right now I am all stabby mood. I should be in a sweet mood but nope LOL

    • I understand. I get in the mood for more violent stories a lot. This is everything you’d expect from a Kelley Armstrong story.

  5. Armstrong is fairly new to me, and I didn’t know about this series. I love these rogue law enforcement type reads. The protagonist sounds kick-ass. Wonderful review 🙂

    • Thanks. I highly recommend anything by Kelley Armstrong.
